Ezequiel Lavezzi has reportedly told his agents that he does not want to remain at Paris Saint Germain for the rest of this season. The Argentine attacker is hoping to gain a move to a Spanish or Italian club during the January transfer window.
Jared Haftel tweets via Twitter that Lavezzi has grown tired of his role under French manager Laurent Blanc. He is either used as a substitute or a left winger by Blanc. Lavezzi would prefer to play as a central striker, where he feels that he could form a good partnership with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. However, with Edinson Cavani at the club, Lavezzi’s chances to play up front are very limited.
There is expected to be plenty of interest in Lavezzi. He is no longer a young player, but he still has a lot of pace and goal scoring ability. Clubs such as Milan, Inter, Napoli and Valencia will be interested in acquiring him from Paris Saint Germain.
Despite being a big money signing when he was bought by the Paris club, Lavezzi has not been a brilliant player for PSG. He only has 25 goals to his name from over 100 appearances. For a striker that is not a great return. However, Lavezzi will argue that most of his games came on the left wing, where it is a lot harder to score goals.
A move to Valencia seems the most likely option, with the Spanish club keen to challenge for a Champions League spot this season.
